I live in US with income in Canada and have a large amount of unused tuition tax credits in Canada.
My understanding is that when doing US Tax I should report my full Canadian income and the amount of tax paid to Canada on that income.
The problem is if I use my tuition credit on my Canadian tax return, this will lower the amount of tax I have to pay to Canada for that year, but I will still have to report the same income on my US tax return.
This would then increase the amount of tax I have to pay in US while wasting those credit.
What is correct way to proceed to avoid wasting the tuition credit.
